A fiesta notice board can describe any festival or festive occasion. In the Latin American countries and Spain, fiesta is usually describing a celebration of a religious holiday. Cinco de Mayo, Mexican Independence Day, All Saints' Day, and Las Posadas are all popular holidays celebrated with a fiesta. There are many ways to decorate notice boards to reflect fiesta activities.
Independence Day in Mexico
You can decorate a notice board with ways to celebrate Mexican Independence Day. Independence Day is celebrated on September 16, with bullfights, plenty of food, festivals, fireworks and rodeos. Your notice board can demonstrate all the ways the Mexican people celebrate their independence.
Cinco de Mayo Fiesta
Cinco de Mayo is celebrated on May 5, so most schools are still in session while fiestas are being held the world over. You can explain to the children how the Mexican people gained victory over the French army in the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Have them make colourful pictures of people celebrating the fiesta with food, music, beverages and the different customs of the country.
Las Posadas Festival
Las Posadas in celebrated in Mexico between December 16 and December 24. In most Mexican cities, there is a parade during this time commemorating Mary and Joseph's journey from Nazareth to Bethlehem. The parade begins with a child dressed like an angel who leads the festival attendees throughout the city. You can have the children draw pictures of the parade procession and a picture of Mary and Joseph as they ride a donkey through the towns searching for shelter.
All Saints' Day Festival
All Saints' Day is remembered with a festival in many parts of the world, and it is a way to honour those who have died. Many Roman Anglicans, Catholics and Protestants hold celebrations to honour the fallen Christian Saints. You can decorate the notice board with the symbols that are common to this day--a piece of wheat, a crown, the hand of God or pictures of individual saints.
